The Ridges Resort was a perfect romantic getaway for me and my Hubby! The staff greeted us with a smile and check-in was pain-free. The lodge, nestled in the north Georgia Mountains, has beautiful lake-side grounds. The numerous lighted walkways made for a great romantic night-time stroll. We loved snuggling up by the fire pit and munching on the s’mores provided by the hotel staff.
Our room was on the first floor with a king size bed and a view of the lake. The bed was cozy with a heavy comforter and plentiful pillows. My Hubby ordered a bottle of champagne from the night clerk, and she happily brought it to our room all dressed up. The lighting in the room was pretty dim, which was somewhat frustrating as I like to read before I go to sleep. There was also no alarm clock, or any clock for that matter anywhere in the room. I’m glad we did not need to wake up early! The curtains were so thick they blocked out every hint of sunlight, so without looking at our cell phones, there was no way to know what time it was. We did manage to make it to the continental breakfast. There were a variety of delicious pastries made fresh by the restaurant’s pastry chef.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and we definitely plan on visiting the Ridges again.More
